Just a short message to tell you and all at Lotus training what a wonderful course I have just finished level 2 counselling. I have really felt that I have achieved a lot and with brilliant guidance from Alison the tutor. The skills I have learnt are life lessons and I will use them in my normal days. The biggest lesson was learning about myself and I’m so much better for it. I am a better person doing the course. I loved the professionalism and the support I received and am using the mindfulness regularly. Especially the meditation techniques. Thank you for passing on these wonderful life skills. Feb 2019
I really enjoyed the Level 2 course, I especially enjoyed the mindfulness aspect of the teachings. We did a lot of self development and skills work/practise. It was lovely to see the group grow together and learn elements of self that weren't seen previously. I particularly enjoyed the mindfulness days and readings from Buddha. I found them really insightful and meaningful. Alison is a wise tutor, she allows you to think and figure out for yourself what the task is, with enough input to start you going. This way of teaching is a good way to make you think and therefore absorb the information. KC Feb 19
The overall training was unlike anything I had previously encountered. It was the spiritual/mindfulness/Buddhist aspect of the training that appealed to me. The training was gentle yet robust. Julie has a way of imparting knowledge that is unique and makes me want to learn. Sue - Level 4 Diploma
...the interview and application weren't just about gathering details, but designed to get an idea of who I am...the interview and open day were really positive experiences...allowed for lots of questions and discussions.
...I have found the course really helpful for my own personal journey as well as learning counselling skills. I've also gained self awareness, and a lot of self reflections. It's been really helpful. Level 2 student.
...A great journey of self-discovery, learning and team work. Great Tutor. Level 2 student.
.... Julie and Heathers tutoring is rooted in much wisdom and experience, which they share with a genuineness.
Really insightful and enjoyable - thank you very much - Level 2 student.
The way Julie and Heather held the group, walked their talk, was so parallel to the way I have been developing my own way of being with others.
The course has proved to be hugely developmental for me both personally and professionally and I am immensely grateful for choosing this course. The learning space itself always feels safe and comfortable with a choice of rooms to work in, and in the warmer dryer months the outdoor space is beautiful.
